Monday, June 19th, El Cerrito: City Council to Vote on Dispensary Ban
El Cerrito currently has a moratorium on new dispensaries and is holding a hearing on whether to adopt an ordinance permanently prohibiting dispensaries. The Council first considered an ordinance which would allow for dispensaries in Del Norte, a major redevelopment site containing multiple low income housing units. The city staff recommended the agenda item and ordinance be called by title only, and there is question as to how much notice was given to the public prior to the previous hearings. The city staff is currently working on a report, and the City Manager claims they have received NO input from patients! Please show your support and express how important dispensaries are to patients!
7:30p.m Community Center, 7007 Moeser Lane.
